Conservation officials say it's Missouri's 29th confirmed mountain lion sighting since 1994. Earlier this year, two mountain lions were confirmed in Reynolds County in southeast Missouri.
The department says it appears that mountain lions in Missouri are largely young males moving in from western states, and that there's no evidence the animals are breeding in Missouri.Mountain lions are protected by law, but Missouri allows people to protect themselves and their property if they feel threatened.
